    The ABNA seminar/workshop takes place January 8-9 at the Divani-Caravel Hotel in downtown Athens, with the participation of the general directors and 25 other officials from the ABNA member agencies from Albania, Bulgaria, Yugoslavia, Greece, Moldova, FYROM, Romania and Turkey, as well as from Australia, venue of the recent 2000 Games.

    Greece's Special Secretary for the Olympic Games 2004, Mr. Kostas Kartalis will address the seminar, while Athens 2004 Olympics coordinating committee (ATHOC) President Gianna Angelopoulos-Daskalaki will be the keynote speaker at the official luncheon on Monday.

    Speakers at the two-day seminar include the chief of the Sports Department at the French news agency AFP Jean-Pierre Gallois, the Australian news agency AAP's organiser of the Sydney Olympic Games coverage John Coomber, the deputy head of the sports desk at German news agency DPA Hans-Mermann Madler, the sports editor at Britain's Press Association (PA) Andy Elliott, the assignment manager and chief photographer at EPA (European Photographic Agency) Anja Niedringhaus, and ATHOC press office director Serapheim Kotrotsos.

    The purpose of the seminar is to develop conditions for joint coverage of the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens by ABNA members as well as to provide constant, reliable and adequate information to the people in the region in the run-up to and during the Games.

    On Tuesday afternoon, ABNA will hold its annual General Assembly.

    ABNA was established in June 1995, during a meeting of Balkan news agency directors in the northern Greek city of Thessaloniki, where the association's archives are housed.
